According to the reputable English publication, The Sun, Feyenoord’s prodigy Orkun Kokcu could be the subject of a bidding war next January, with three Premier League giants closely monitoring his development for quite some time.
Although he is yet to break into the Feyenoord’s first-team squad, the 17-year-old midfielder has drawn Europe’s attention after his outstanding displays for De club aan de Maas’ Under-19s last season.
The author of 17 goals and 34 assists last campaign has emerged as one of the brightest talents in Europe, attracting the interest from Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur among others.

As the same source reports, the London rivals are planning a January move, trying to get their hands on the Netherlands Under-19s international before it is too late.
However, the Premier League heavyweights will have to beat the competition from the French outfit, Paris Saint-Germain, who have already sent scouts to observe the prosperous youngster.
Kokcu, who has been training with Feyenoord’s first-team this year, is expected to get the opportunity to demonstrate his potential in the Dutch top flight before January.
